France and Japan - Foods
I have lived in France before for two years; so I would like to introduce foods of Paris in France. France is the heart of the world culture and art. Among them, Paris which is the capital of France is typical of France culture through the many foods. If you visit Paris, you can enjoy many traditional dishes. Paris is popular for many kinds of wines with good quality and cheese. Many French say that it’s tasty to have both wine and cheese. Not only does Paris have many attractive foods such as Foie gras, Escargot, Chateau briand, Ratatouille, Bouillabaisse, Crepe and so on. Among them I will introduce three impressive dishes. First, Escargot is “snail with garlic butter” (wilkipedia.org). This food usually serves as an appetizer in France restaurants. I have eaten escargot before, and at that time I thought it was a very terrible food because snail is unfamiliar ingredients in Korea. Second, Foie gras is “the liver of a duck or a goose that has been specially fattened by gavages” (wilkipedia.org). This food is a well known gourmet meal because it usually entertains very important people in France and its ingredients are expensive, so I have never eaten this food. Lastly, Crepe is “a thin pancake. The French word is from the Latin root crispa meaning "curled", from which the English word "crisp" is also derived (wilkipedia.org). This food is well known as desert and is popular food such as Bung-O-Bbang in Korea. Crepe’s ingredient is flour basically and other ingredients are variety meats, vegetables, and sauces. When I lived in France, I usually ate this food with my younger brother, so this food is a good memory for me.
I would like to introduce to you about Tokyo's foods because I want you to know about Tokyo's foods and enjoy it together. "Tokyo is port city" (tripadvisor.com), so it is easy to get seafoods in Tokyo. There are many foods made with seafoods. “Sushi is a traditional Japanese food”(tripadvisor.com), and it is made using raw fishes and rices. So, it is important to eat early before the Sushi goes bad. Okonomiyaki is also a famous food of Tokyo. “It is a Japanese pancake containing a variety of ingredients”(wikipedia.org). It resembles a Kimchi Pancake of Korea, but it is thicker than the Kimchi Pancake. “It also consists of a seafood that is a cuttlefish”(wikipedia.org). It makes the Okonomiyaki more delicious and to have a fantastic visual. Tokyo has various seafoods and delicious foods. It will be happy time to travel the Tokyo and to eat various foods. We can enjoy together in Japan.
Paris Food Comparison to Tokyo Food
I compare Paris’ foods to Tokyo’s foods. Paris’ food cultures have Tokyo’s in common. They especially consider a table manner. For example, The French and Japanese spend much time eating meal; “French spend about 2 hours, and Japanese also spend 1 hour above”(wilkipedia.org). Not only are there similarities between the two countries they also have differences. Paris’ foods are more luxurious than Tokyo’s foods, because the French is well known gourmet, so Paris’ foods improve easily. Paris’ foods also taste better than Tokyo’s. When you enjoy Parks’ foods, you may have to add enjoyment to eat because the French have a delicate palate because of spice such as Basil, Sage and so on. My opinion about Paris’ food is that Paris has fabulous foods. There are not only gorgeous cultures but also delicious foods, so Paris’ food is the most fantastic dishes in the world. If you travel Europe, you must go to Paris and then enjoy many Paris’ dishes.
Tokyo Food Comparison to Paris Food
After I read the information about Pairs’ foods, I understood that Paris also has various foods like Tokyo. Paris’ food has many decorations, and It is more colorful than Tokyo’s food in my opinion. There are also many fresh seafoods in Paris, but I think that Tokyo’s seafood is the most fresh in the world because “Tokyo is port city”(tripadvisor.com). Both of two citys have excellent foods, and I want to eat all of them.
